Antonio Garcia Womens Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . Curry, who on Friday had seen the end of his incredible 157-game streak with at least one three-pointer in a defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers, finished with 46 points after a virtuoso display.The reigning NBA MVPs 13 threes broke the previous record of 12 he had shared with Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall. Thats a pretty cool record to have, Curry said after the win. It probably wont last too long, the way guys shoot in this league. But to have the three point record is pretty special.Curry, who made zero of 10 three-point attempts in his last outing against the Lakers, said he had not dwelt on his setback last week, the first time in two years he had not drained a three.I wasnt even thinking about the 0 for 10 tonight, he said. I was thinking about it a bit in practice for the last two days, but after that it was over. It was nice to keep shooting. And thankfully they went in. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Curry paid tribute to the work of his team-mates in helping to set him into position for his three-point bonanza, especially his 13th and final effort in the fourth quarter.The guys set great screens all night. And on that last play they had the IQ to know where I was. Pretty fun night, he added.The win saw the Warriors improve to five and two while the Pelicans slumped to 0-7 despite another big points haul from Anthony Davis, who finished with 33. Davis has averaged 30 points per game so far this season.Curry nailed three three-pointers in a 27-5 scoring run in the second quarter which transformed a 35-34 deficit into a 61-40 lead shortly before half-time. Currys haul kept the Pelicans at bay However, a 24-9 surge by the Pelicans in the third quarter, which included nine points from Davis, helped New Orleans back into the contest.Once again, though, Curry intervened to turn the tide, hitting his ninth and 10th threes of the night to help the Warriors into an 84-78 lead.The Pelicans closed to within two early in the fourth but Curry was not to be denied. He buried his 11th, 12th and record-breaking 13th three pointers on consecutive possessions to turn a five-point game into a 109-97 lead with 2:23 on the clock.Curry finished with figures of 13 of 17 from three-point distance; the 40-point tally was the 23rd of his career.Klay Thompson added 24 points while Kevin Durant chipped in 22. Derek Rivers Patriots Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

The phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt. Winchester, who was not penalized for the hit, appeared to make contact with Kellys head early in the first period of Thursdays game in Boston. Pakistan opener Azhar Ali, after making his teams historic 400th Test even more memorable by scoring a triple-hundred, has rued the lack of crowds at the Dubai International Stadium. Unable to host matches at home since 2009 due to security concerns, Pakistan now play their home matches in the UAE, but they rarely get big crowds for Test cricket in venues like Dubai and Abu Dhabi. While the whole idea of day-night Tests is to attract bigger crowds to the ground, the second day of the Test - a Friday and public holiday in the UAE - had mostly empty stands despite Pakistans batsmen scoring runs with ease.If I had scored this at home, it would have been much better feeling and a better crowd would have made this occasion better, but a 300 is a 300 and I will take that any day, Azhar said on Friday night. But I would love it if more crowd came in and watched the day-bight Test. I would want to dedicate the innings to my parents and my country, who live cricket so much and support Pakistani cricket even through tough times when we cant play at home.Azhar, who also crossed 4000 Test runs in this his 50th Test, became Pakistans fourth batsmen in the triple-century club after Hanif Mohammad (337), Inzamam-ul-Haq (329) and Younis Khan (313). He spent two minutes short of 11 hours at the crease to score an unbeaten 302 off 469 balls with the help of 23 fours and two sixes.I cant really explain my feelings, the way the team and captain supported me through the last few runs, when I was nearing 300, it was exceptional from them, Azhar said. It is a great achievement and I will remember it all my life. It is a proud moment for me, those who have already scored triple-centuries have been exceptional and world-class players, I am still working hard on my game but getting on that 300 list is a proud moment for me.Opening the batting in Tests is a new role for Azhar. While he had done it earlier only in four matches between 2013 and 2015, he was asked to open again recently, during the fourth Test in England, as Mohammad Hafeez was dropped after a poor run. With Shoaib Malik also retired from Tests, Azhar seems to have now taken the role on for a longer run. One consequence of opening also means Azhar would have to bat for longer periods when he scores big, and its effects were seen when he started cramping after reaching his hundred.It was hard and I was sweating all the time, Azhar said. Even yesterday I was feeling cramps but today I was getting runs; you get motivated with what is in front of you and that keeps you going. When you get pitches like this, you want to score big and when the chance comes, you convert hundred iinto double and triple, and that really boosted me. Deatrich Wise Jr. Womens Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. It has been tough overall but I kept going on and I am really happy that we have also set up a big total. I dont think a lot about records while batting but instead kept my focus in the game, went with the flow and let things unfold on their own. Obviously, when you are set, you have to maintain the pace of the runs as well but for such a big score you also require luck factor despite how good the pitch is. So I did my hard work and was pushing myself when I was approaching 300 because you cant really reach 270-280 every day in your career. Scoring a double is tough and think about how hard it would be to score triple. All I did was to keep things simple because when you are approaching a big milestone, the pressure naturally increases and at that stage even the non-regular bowlers are creating trouble.Azhar had earlier said that he was not completely comfortable with the pink ball, when they experimented with it in Pakistans domestic cricket. But after batting for nearly two days against the pink ball in Dubai, Azhar said the visibility of the ball was clear but was reluctant to give a broader projection about its future.I did see the pink ball clearly as the wicket was good and the ball didnt do much for most parts of the couple of days we played, he said. These were different conditions. In the first [day-night] Test in Australia, the ball was swinging around in the evening so I think in different conditions this ball will do different things. You cannot just decide on this pitch how effective the ball is going to be - whether it is more favourable for batsmen or bowlers. I think we need to see more games and then see what happens.While the declaration came as soon as Azhar crossed 300, he was asked if getting to 400 was on his mind or if he thought of reaching big scores when he began his innings.I didnt want go beyond 300 because there is a team plan and winning is important, he said. To continue batting from there could have hurt our teams plans. Actually, I never thought about scoring 300 but was thinking about the teams needs. But yes, when I start my innings, I do think about scoring big.Double-hundred was what I was looking at and I got a lot of messages to get that as a triple looked quite far away. We had a plan and there was a shortage of time as we had to declare. We played according to the time we had and I knew I had to score a triple-hundred before that. It came easier but I did play big shots as well. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">RIO DE JANEIRO -- Preparing for his final race before retirement in the Olympic velodrome, Bradley Wiggins phone flashed with a message. 

Ish Smith Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Dont think records. Think medal, the British cyclist recalled reading. Its about going out and killing off opposition now. Stay relaxed in the line. Deliver. Youll become the greatest by end of play because you are.But think about killing them off, the records come naturally if you dont chase them, just chase the opposition.They were just the reassuring words Wiggins needed before riding to victory on Friday in the team pursuit at the Rio de Janeiro Games. And they were written by Shane Sutton, the brash Australian who was technical director of British Cycling before leaving under a cloud in April.Sutton quit after being suspended while under investigation for making discriminatory remarks. It seemed quite a setback for the all-conquering British cycling project ahead of the Olympics. But Britain has remained the leading force in Rio de Janeiro, with Sutton remaining a private mentor to some of his former charges.Wiggins was part of the gold medal-winning team pursuit that enabled him to become Britains most decorated Olympian with eight medals.Wiggins is hoping the mastermind of British glory at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics regains his job, believing there isnt sufficient evidence to find Sutton guilty of wrongdoing.Female cyclist Jess Varnish accused Sutton of making derogatory comments about her body shape and told her to move on and have a baby after she failed to qualify for this years Olympics, according to a British newspaper account. Para-cyclist Darren Kenny also alleged that he heard Sutton refer to members of the disability team in derogatory terms. Sutton denies wrongdoing.He wants to come back, Wiggins said. I spoke to him two weeks ago and he said his life is pretty empty without this. I think he has the right to. Why not?Although Wiggins accepts interim team leader Andy Harrison has steadied the ship, the former Tour de France winner said Sutton should be credited with the Rio success.All this stuff is a result of (Suttons) work, Wiggins said. He was in charge of it. He put all the foundations in place for this week, over years.I came back to the track squad because he was in charge, he encouraged me to come back and I probably wouldnt have come back, had it been somebody else in charge 18 months ago.---Rob Harris can be followed at and Mateen Cleaves Pistons Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Turns out the offensively challenged Los Angeles Rams are capable of getting the ball in the end zone.Case Keenum threw for the teams first touchdown since relocating back to Los Angeles, and Todd Gurley rushed for two more scores Sunday in a 37-32 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The Rams (2-1), who did not have TD in the first two games of the season, also scored on Ethan Westbrooks 77-yard fumble return and Tavon Austins 43-yard reception in the fourth quarter before thunder and lightning caused a 69-minute weather delay with two minutes remaining. When you score points, which we did, youve got a chance, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.The Rams, who used three field goals to beat Seattle 9-3 in Week 2, saw Keenum complete 14 of 25 passes for 190 yards, two TDs and one interception, which Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander returned 38 yards for a first-quarter touchdown. In addition to throwing a TD pass to Austin for a late 11-point lead, he got the Rams on track early with his 44-yard scoring pass to Brian Quick for the franchises first TD as the L.A. Rams since 1994.Anytime you can get out there and have success early, it kind of settles you down as an offense, Keenum said.The defense did its part, too, holding off Jameis Winstons bid to rally the Bucs (1-2) in the closing seconds.Tampa Bay forced a punt after the lightning delay and drove from its 44 to the Rams 15 in 1:42 before Winston threw two incompletions and was tackled by Robert Quinn after a 10-yard run on the final play. Winston looked tentative and never really took off full-speed on the play, instead apparently still hoping to throw the ball after he crossed the line scrimmage.I was just trying to bait them, get closer to the end zone, Winston said. At that moment Ive got to give somebody a chance in the end zone.Winston threw for 405 yards and three TDs for Tampa Bay (1-2). He threw an interception that set up one of Gurleys two 1-yard touchdown runs, and was stripped by the Quinn on the fumble that Westbrooks returned up the left sideline for a 31-20 lead.Mike Evans 7-yard TD reception trimmed Tampa Bays deficit to 37-32 with 2:15 remaining.Im confident in my defense. Isiah Thomas Pistons Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Its the best defense in the league, and I believe that, Keenum said. I had no doubts they were going to stop them.WEATHER DELAYOfficials suspended play during the two-minute warning with the Rams facing third-and-11 from their 5. Fans were asked to clear the stands and seek coverage in stadium concourses before the approaching thunderstorm passed directly over the field, dumping heavy rain.DROUGHT ENDSThe Rams scored their first touchdown of the season, driving 75 yards on eight plays following the opening kickoff to take a 7-0 lead on Keenums 44-yard pass to Quick just over three minutes into the game. Gurleys TD, set up by ex-Buc Mark Barrons interception and 7-yard return to the Tampa Bay 22, trimmed Tampa Bays lead to 20-17 just before halftime. With Tampa Bay driving for a possible go-ahead score in the fourth quarter, Quinns sack/strip led to Westbrooks fumble return. It was the NFL-leading 18th fumble Quinn has forced since entering the league in 2012.FILLING INWith RB Doug Martin sidelined with a hamstring injury, Charles Sims made his first NFL pro start for the Bucs and rushed for 55 yards on 13 attempts. The third-year pro, who has been a key component of Tampa Bays passing game since Winston joined the team, also had six receptions for 69 yards.WATCH ME NOWThe Bucs unveiled a new video board system as part of a $140 million renovation of Raymond James Stadium. The system features two 9,600 square-foot boards on the north and south ends of the stadium, as well as four 2,300 square-foot tower walls. With more than 31,000 square feet of combined video display space, the team says it the third-largest video board system in the NFL.WINSTONS TARGETSEvans had 10 receptions for 132 yards and became the first player in Bucs history to catch a TD pass in three consecutive games to start a season.

He could have had Anderson again when he pulled a short ball to fine leg, which was being guarded by Scott Boland. Boland had to dive forward to pluck the ball before it made ground, but he didnt seem convinced that he had taken the catch cleanly. Some replays suggested he had, but with the benefit of the doubt going to Anderson, Marsh was denied again.Not out or out After a strong start, Ireland were wobbling and Sean Terry only worsened their situation with lack of awareness off the first ball he faced. Terry was hit on the pads by Daniel Worrall, who turned to deliver a prolonged appeal. The ball was with Australia captain Steve Smith, who saw that Terry had left his crease while the appeal was ongoing, and reacted quickly to throw the ball onto the stumps and find Terry short of his ground.Caught or grassed II Irelands fielding had let them down against South Africa on Sunday, and it did not seem to have improved over the two days. Their first chance came early, in the fourth over, when Usman Khawaja top-edged a pull off Barry McCarthy. Peter Chase had to run in from long leg to take the catch. While he got to it and had the ball in his hands, it then popped out. There was no doubt, it was definitely grassed.Pain but no gain With the match out of Irelands grasp, all they may have wanted was things to end quickly and fairly painlessly, but they were not even spared that. McCarthy attempted to show some football skills in fielding a Steve Smith drive in his followthrough, but went after the ball with the arch of his foot instead of doing so flush with the heel, and hurt himself instead. The ball squirted towards the non-strikers end, but Khawaja was alert to what was happening and made sure he was safe. Thon Maker Bucks Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

Englands batting versus spinR Ashwin tweeted his congratulations after Bangladesh secured their historic Test win over England last month - but the details of Englands collapse on the third evening in Dhaka, when they lost 10 wickets in a session, surely excited him even more. The teenaged Mehedi Hasan, an orthodox offspinner, picked up his third six-for in four innings to be named Man of the Series and left England in no doubt about the size of the challenge facing them on the subcontinent. Ashwin recently claimed 27 wickets at 17.77 in three Tests against New Zealand, while Ravindra Jadeja is a metronomic menace on helpful surfaces, and they are primed to pick apart English techniques against spin; among the top seven, only Alastair Cook (who averages 61.85 in India) has significant experience of the conditions. Englands batsmen face not so much a learning curve as a cliff if they are to avoid getting turned over.The leading lights: Kohli and RootIndias captain, Virat Kohli, sets the tone in the field and with bat in hand, while England will seek inspiration from Joe Root, the highest-ranked batsman on either side. For both, this could be a defining series. Kohli has banked more than his share of failures against England, averaging 20.12 in 17 Test innings, but has a vastly improved record since taking over from MS Dhoni, which includes two double-hundreds in the last four months. Root, meanwhile, has established himself among the best in his generation since making 73 on debut in Nagpur four years ago - but is still awaiting a first Test hundred in Asia. Sam Billings, one of the few Englishmen to play in the IPL, says Kohli and Root share a work ethic that sets them apart. Theyre both seriously, seriously good, he said. Id go as far as to say theyre freaks, but with a kind of un-freakish nature. May the best freak win.India versus Moeen Ali: Round TwoDuring the summer of 2014, England faced a dilemma about how to replace Graeme Swann. Moeen Ali was picked and, despite an underwhelming debut series against Sri Lanka, he suckered India spectacularly on the way to 19 wickets at 23.00 as England came from behind for a 3-1 series win. A couple of years on and England still have plenty of problems in the spin department but Moeen is sure to have a key role (not least because of his batting). He admitted in Bangladesh that he is still nowhere near where I want to be as a spinner and has struggled withh the demands of leading an inexperienced spin attack: wicket-taking deliveries will doubtless materialise but control remains an issue. Matthew Dellavedova Bucks Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Bangladesh and, in particular, Pakistan have found success in attacking Moeen but that was Indias downfall in their last meeting. If Moeen maintains his mozz, things could get interesting.The role of the rookiesIndia have three uncapped players in their 15-man squad, while England head into the first Test having fielded a debutant in their previous two matches. Indias young guns, Hardik Pandya and Karun Nair, may be in a shootout for one place but the absence of Rohit Sharma means an inexperienced pivot at No. 6 (unless they go for a five-man attack); there is also the possibility of KL Rahul returning from injury to win his 10th Test cap, should Gautam Gambhirs latest comeback not go to plan. For the tourists, there is a decision to make on whether to stick Ben Duckett and his reverse-sweep stylings at the top of the order - after one fifty in four innings in Bangladesh - or bring in another new face in Haseeb Hameed. England may also stick with Zafar Ansari, on the grounds that he will turn the ball away from Indias right-handers. By Christmas, some of those names might ring a few more bells.Batsman-wicketkeeper versus wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow is two-thirds of the way through a record-breaking year as Englands Test wicketkeeper. In Bangladesh, he first passed Andy Flowers mark for the most runs by a wicketkeeper in a calendar year (and could still eclipse Michael Vaughans overall England record); then he moved ahead of Matt Prior with the most calendar year dismissals for England. And yet… as soon as Bairstow drops a chance, as he did in the Chittagong Test, the murmurs about whether he merits the gloves will return. Five matches in six weeks in India will stretch him in every way imaginable and the scrutiny will be sharpened by the contrast with the oppositions man. Wriddhiman Saha is something of a throwback, a wicketkeeper first and batsman second (although he can certainly hold his own), tidying up assiduously behind the stumps. He was only required to take two catches in three Tests against New Zealand but, after almost two years in the job, he has achieved the wicketkeepers grail: not being talked about. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

Adidas Yeezy Norge/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . He didnt want the Washington Capitals to get off to a quick start.The Capitals scored on Nicklas Backstroms goal barely three minutes into the game, but the Blue Jackets didnt fold and got a last-minute goal with Backstrom in the penalty box and escaped with their fourth straight win, 3-2 over the angry Capitals. Backstrom was called for high-sticking Nick Foligno with 1:34 remaining, a penalty that the Capitals vehemently disputed.Alexander Wennberg took a pass from Foligno and slammed it past Capitals goalie Braden Holtby with 54 seconds left in the game. The goal was confirmed after a video review.It was the Blue Jackets second power play goal of the game, and Washington coach Barry Trotz didnt like the call that cost his team.If you see the replay, he doesnt really touch him, and his head pops up when (Backstroms) stick is already on the way down. Thats just a little disrespectful to the game, Trotz said. The penalty call was not great for me.Backstrom, who also assisted on Alex Ovechkins ninth goal of the season midway through the second period, didnt think he touched Foligno.Last two minutes you get a penalty thats not a penalty, thats tough, Backstrom said.Columbus has its longest winning streak since they ran off nine straight wins from March 18-April 4, 2015.Sometimes it seemed like they took over the game more and more but we started to play smart and at the end of the game we felt like we played smart and got opportunity to score, Wennberg said. Find a way to win. Its as easy as that.Tortorella, who has eliminated morning skates from the Blue Jackets routine, talked to his team about the perils of getting off to a slow start.They score one, but they dont score the two and three where it can really knock you out in an afternoon game like this, really a morning game, he said. That steadied us a little bit.Ovechkins ninth goal of the season gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead, but the Blue Jackets tied it just 14 seconds into the third period on Brandon Dubinskys second goal of the season.Columbus goal by Foligno six minutes into the second period broke Washingtons streak of 15 straight successful penalty kills.Other than the disputed call, Trotz didnt find much to find fault with -- even though it was the Capitals second loss in five days to the Blue Jackets.They played a solid game. We played a solid game. Theres not going to be a lot of mistakes, Trotz said.Game notes Washington was without C Lars Eller and RW T.J. Oshie. Both have upper-body injuries. They were injured in Fridays game against Detroit. . C Paul Carey was recalled from AHL Hershey. . Columbus D Dalton Prout (upper body) missed his third straight game. .

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Olympic 100-meter champion Elaine Thompson took center stage in the absence of her Jamaican teammate Usain Bolt in the first Diamond League meet after the Rio de Janeiro Games on Thursday.Thompson timed 10.78 seconds with a slight tailwind at Athletissima -- just .07 outside her time in the 100 final in Rio and .08 behind her world-leading time this season.It was Thompsons second time down the track after most runners initially ignored a false start gun.To be able to produce (10.78) on a second attempt, its a great time, said Thompson, a double gold medalist in 100 and 200 who almost matched Bolts title triple, but took home silver in the 4x100 relay.With Bolt celebrating his 30th birthday in London, Churandy Martina of the Netherlands won the 200 in 19.81, just .03 slower than Bolt ran in the Olympic final and a national recordIn the 100, Bolts gold-medal winning relay teammate Asafa Powell clocked 9.96 to win on a track where he ran his personal record of 9.72 soon after the Beijing Olympics.One contender to help the sports void when Bolt retires is Jamaican 110 hurdler Omar McLeod. However, the Olympic champion was edged by .01 on Thursday by the rival he beat for gold, Orlando Ortega. The Spaniards winning run was 13.11.American hurdlers dominated the womens races, and Kendra Harrison again showed what she could have achieved in Rio had she earned selection at national trials.Harrison, who set a world record of 12.20 in London last month, won here in 12.42 -- faster by .06 than the Olympic gold-winning time of teammate Brianna Rollins, who did not run Thursday.Olympic champion Dalilah Muhammad timed 53.78 in a clear 400 hurdles win.Two American bronze medalists in Rio won theirr events: LaShawn Merritt clocked 44. Herre/Dame Adidas Originals Superstar Supercolor PHARRELL WILLIAMS Sko Bright Gul/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. 0 in the 400, and Sam Hendricks set a pole vault meet record by clearing the bar at 5.92.

Remi Garde calls for unity after fan protest during Everton defeat However, speaking after the game, Garde urged everyone connected with the club to stay united as he continues to plot a path to avoid relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.Its always better when everyone - the fans, the club, players and manager - stick together, Garde told Sky Sports.When you are bottom of the league it is because there are problems and the more problems you have the more problems come as well. Everton boss Roberto Martinez was pleased with his sides start to the game after they beat Aston Villa 3-1. I dont want to make comments about that [protest], Ive got enough work to do with the players in trying to give them the best solution to win the next game.I still believe that mathematically we can still do it [avoid relegation}. I am frustrated at the results tonight with rivals getting a point or having lost games.It is not over, of course it is more difficult but when I see my team in the second half I still believe that we can win enough games and points. Aston Villas Micah Richards says they have not been good enough this season after they lost 3-1 to Everton.

Clearly tonight we had a lack of confidence. Everton cruise at Villa Aston Villas dismal run of form continued as Everton cruised to a 3-1 victory at Villa Park. Some spells of the game were good, we created chances, we used width of the pitch as we wanted with many crosses and we scored one goal.

At our first editorial meeting to discuss ideas for Indias 500th Test, inevitably the thought strayed to the future and temporarily the mood turned sombre. It had taken just over eight decades for India to reach 500, but how many more to the 1,000th? Will there be a 1,000th?But it was apparent in a moment how absurd and incongruous that thought was. It was an occasion not for foreboding, but for gratitude. For as long as it has existed, Test cricket has been a reminder that higher and lasting pleasure can be derived from engagement and absorption, from anticipation and waiting, and from enjoying the journey as much as the destination.And it is more relevant and resonant than ever before in a world that is prone to living in moments. Few other sports are as sharply defined by singular moments as cricket, but its the sum of those moments that makes Test cricket the grandest, the deepest and the most profound of sporting experiences. Once you make the connection, it usually lasts for life.Mine started nearly four decades ago, with a small transistor radio clutched to my ear in the early winter mornings. India were playing the Bobby Simpson-led, Kerry Packer-depleted Australia, and the series, swinging one way and the other, ended in an epic six-day Test, with India falling short of a 493-run target by only 47 runs to concede the series 3-2.I was yet to hold a bat, and beyond the short Films Division news reels that played in movie theatres, I had seen no other cricket. I read up a short book by Vijay Merchant on the basics of the game, and it might have been an aunt who filled me up with some background, but the rest the mind imagined. I can swear I had a fairly graphic image of Sunil Gavaskars forward-defensive shot even before I watched him play.The colour of the game has changed immeasurably in the last four decades. The World Cup arrived in the 80s; Sachin Tendulkar ruled the heart in the 90s when India only won at home; the Test team truly arrived in the first decade of the new century; and in the last 10 years, the IPL has rewritten the rules of the game, both of how it is played and watched. But even more significantly, from the transistor radio in the 70s, Indians have at their command home-entertainment options that are no longer limited to even to the 1,700-odd television channels available.For Test cricket, this challenge also brings an opportunity. There is no doubt that the base has shrunk and will shrink further. But a niche is not necessarily an obscure corner. It can be distinct, high-profile and aspirational. It can be clutter-breaking, the rarer pleasure requiring fans to spend the commodity considered thee most scarce: time. Tampa Bay Rays Hats/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. The faithful will be rewarded, and they will enlist more. In many ways, it is already a miracle that a sport lasting 40 hours a game has lasted 140 years. It will endure.It is perhaps no more than a coincidence, but what can be a bigger celebration of Indias 500th Test than the fact that it marks the beginning of Indias biggest home Test season in memory. Fault them for whatever else, BCCI officials, current and those just out of office, have shown a remarkable commitment to Test cricket. Thirteen is a significant number. With 103 Tests, the previous decade was Indias most prolific, and this decade, with 66 Tests already, is well on its way to match or exceed it. And if India stay the course, the 1,000th could come in double-quick time. Institutionalising a home season would be a progressive use of the BCCIs clout.It is also pertinent that Test cricket is going to smaller towns, with as many as six new Test venues being added. Players occasionally grumble about smaller venues that lack the attractions of the big cities, but arousing fan interest is a greater imperative. Test cricket needs spectators in the grounds, and it is worth taking the chance on smaller venues, which now have excellent playing facilities. It is now incumbent on the state associations to make fans feel welcome. They could start by making daily tickets easily available instead of the take-it-or-leave-it season tickets. Clean toilets and drinking water would be nice too. Love cant forever be one-sided, and it can no longer be taken for granted.?But it matters as much, if not more, that the players care. And in Virat Kohli, India have at the helm a cricketer not merely of considerable skills but with a passion to match. Kohli is a man of the times, a hero and an icon that the fans of his generation identify with. And he brings to Test cricket both the edge of his personality and the syntax of the shorter formats, in which he first earned his fame. He respects the challenges of Test cricket, but plays it on his own terms. His rage not only fuels the engine of his young team, it also fires public imagination.The 500th is a good reason for celebrating the past, and we will do so on these pages through the course of this Test. But there is much to look forward to too. The best way to celebrate this season would be to turn up at the grounds, tune in to the action on TV, or simply log on to our sites. We will be doing our bit, ball by ball. If you think Test cricket is worthy, its time to show it. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">President-elect Donald Trump met Tuesday with several black celebrities, including rap mogul and possible future presidential candidate Kanye West, to talk about some of the issues facing inner city African-Americans. 

Yellow Kevin Pillar Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future president if we truly want change, West later said in a tweet.Trump met with West, former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis and NFL icon and civil rights leader Jim Brown, along with longtime Trump backer Omarosa Manigault, at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday. West refused to comment with reporters after the meeting, instead saying only I just want to take a picture right now as he posed for pictures with Trump.A few minutes later, West tweeted from his (at)kanyewest account that he met with Trump to discuss multicultural issues including bullying, education and violence in Chicago.West announced last year at the Video Music Awards that he would run for president in 2020. That means he would face Trump if the president-elect seeks a second term. After meeting with Trump, West hashtagged a tweet (hash)2024, the first time someone would be able to run for president outside of a possible two-term Trump presidency.This all comes as civil rights leaders have been asking for a meeting with Trump to discuss his upcoming administrations positions on issues like housing and urban renewal. The Rev. Jesse Jackson and other civil rights leaders last week wrote Trump to ask for a meeting to discuss urban policies, and to hold a White House conference on violence.It was not immediately known whether Trump would be meeting with civil rights leaders. Meeting with black celebrities -- especially West -- is not going to give Trump much credibility among black voters, said Leah Wright Rigueur, a professor of public policy at Harvard Universitys Kennedy School of Government.Exit polls showed only about 8 percent of black voters backed Trump.While Trump may see this as establishing a level of legitimacy, it does nothing to validate him among black audiences. Kanyes recent views are outside the mainstream of black political thought, as are Donald Trump, she said. If anything, the association only serves to weaken Kanyes standing, particularly since Kanye has been silent on issues like economic inequality, joblessness, criminal justice reform and Black Lives Matter.Brown and Lewis said they talked with Trump about the new administration partnering with Browns Amer-I-Can outreach program, which aims to teach life skills to young people from poor backgrounds.The full governmental involvement of President Barack Obamas signature program, My Brothers Keeper, which is designed to improve the lives of boys and young men of color, will likely come to an official end at the conclusion of his presidency.Brown said he didnt vote for Trump. But we couldnt have had a better meeting, said Brown, a three-time MVP who retired from football to pursue an acting career and crusade for racial justice. The graciousness, the intelligence, the reception we got was fantastic.Lewis, a former Super Bowl MVP, said on Twitter that wherever Papa JB asks me to go I go. His vision is beyond platforms.After the meeting, Lewis praised the Amer-I-Can program, saying because of it we have 30,000-40,000 former gang members whove changed their lives.If they can partner with the Trump administration, forget black or white. Black or white is irrelevant, Lewis said. The bottom line is job creation and economic development in these urban areas to change the whole scheme of what our kids see. Aaron Sanchez Blue Jays Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

TROON, Scotland -- Well that was epic! But what about for the guys who were not in the two horse race that was the final group? How did the tournament feel for them? I found a caddie that had just come off the course, who had experienced all the weather and flavor this championship had to offer. Enjoy!Collins: Whats the best thing about caddying in The Open? Caddie: Right now? Having a beer afterwards. [We both laugh] Nah listen, Ive been very fortunate. I think this is my 34th [major] ... its the one most special to my heart and Id dearly love to win one someday with someone. Ive come close with [players] over the last few years and to knock one off would be something special. Its always a great buzz, its a true test of golf having the elements and its shot making. Shot making seems to have disappeared over the last 15 years with the equipment; the golf ball doesnt move as much. So seeing these young guns struggling, having to knock em [shots] down and hold em into the wind, its great to see proper golf.Collins: Most challenging part of caddying this week was...? Caddie: This Open, well ya know, when its downwind or into the wind its quite easy to gauge. But when youre playing the whole golf course and its right to left going out, Is it slightly helping? Is it slightly against? And on the way back you find the wind howling left to right, Is it straight left to right or is it slightly against? Its a fine line. You always find yourself hedging your bets between clubs. Its very difficult but again its always about shot making. If you let it go on the wind itll go a long way. If you draw into the wind then it wont go as far. It really tests the golfer and the caddies mentality.Collins: [Player walks by hi-fives us and softly yells, Im done! happily walking away] How is Sunday different for the caddie? Caddie: Sunday is just another day when youve teed off in the middle of the pack. But obviously Sunday for these guys just getting out there [pauses], you know its fine. You feel fairly comfortable teeing off the front nine, even maybe the first two or three holes on the back nine. But when you get to like 14 ... 15 ... and the Claret Jug or the Green Jacket is on the line, then you find out what your mettle is.Collins: Even the caddie? Caddie: The caddie starts the chalk of it, theres no doubt about it. And experience, Ive been through that a few times, can help you down the stretchh. Michael Saunders Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Theres no doubt those boys [the caddies] will be feeling the heat down the stretch and youve got to put your heart on the line and say what youre thinking. If the guys wanting to know, Is it seven iron? and you believe its an eight iron. You know, its not easy to stand up to the player and say, No boss. Youre wrong its an eight iron, when youre under the most intense pressure. The good caddies will say its an eight iron, some guys that have not had that experience will gag it and let his guy hit seven iron over the green out of bounds at the last [hole]. And the last hole [the 18th hole at Royal Troon] has just turned downwind and its playing so short, I can see somebody [player] on the gravel in front of the clubhouse ordering a beer before they finish the tournament today!Collins: Other than weather, what makes The Open so hard for a caddie? Caddie: ... The vast, vast changes in club selection. You know if the course gets a little bit burnt up ... I mean I caddied for [a player] at [a major golf course] a couple years ago, he hit a 7 iron off the 12th tee 280 yards. With a 7 iron! And youve [the caddie] got to read that. [Realize] is it playing fast and firm or ya know which humps are you gonna catch, which ones are you just gonna clear then get a shoot in bounce and itll run 40 yards. Thats the difference, you are open to the elements more than any other golf tournament and youre open to that little bit of luck. Getting that right bounce at the right time which when youve won an Open Championship youve rode your luck a little bit!Collins: Which was the hardest hole to caddie Sunday? Caddie: The hardest hole to caddie will probably be the 19th, Michael. [Caddie busts out laughing because at first he said the answer so seriously]. Nah, the 11th, the 11th always plays [then he thinks for a second]. Well the 12th is playing tough. Its a small elevated green and youre hitting a four or five iron into a pumping left-to-right into wind. Its a difficult hole.Collins: How hard is it going from here to the next major in only one week? Caddie: Its not difficult. Its a week off and you roll into Baltusrol fresh. Roll into Baltusrol wind a fresh mind just ready to play another golf tournament. And thats all it is, just another golf tournament. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

Kris Dunn Bulls Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . West played an integral role towards Indianas run to the Central Division title and appearance in the Eastern Conference finals this past season, with the 10-year-veteran averaging 17.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists over 73 games as the Pacers starting power forward. Previous reports indicated that Wests new contract is for three years and worth $36 million. "This is the ideal situation for myself at this stage of my career," said West. "Theres really no other group that Id rather be part of for the next few years than this group." The 32-year-old spent his first eight NBA seasons with the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets before signing a two-year deal with the Pacers shortly after the 2011 lockout. Over 669 career games, West has averaged 16.1 points and 7.2 rebounds and made back-to-back All-Star Games with the Hornets in 2008 and 2009. "Hes done more for this franchise then he could ever imagine," Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said of West. "Coming in here, establishing himself as a great player, not only on the court, but in the locker room and the city. Theres special players that come through that are great players, but they dont give their heart and soul off the court or in the locker room to make other players better. Were very much appreciative of that." Indiana also introduced free agent addition C.J. Watson, who signed a reported two-year contract to serve as the teams new backup to starting point guard George Hill. Watson is coming off a solid season as Deron Williams understudy with the Brooklyn Nets in which the six-year pro averaged 6.8 points and 2.0 assists over 80 games and shot 41.1 percent from 3-point range. He averaged 9.7 points and a career-best 4.1 assists while starting 25 out of 49 contests for the Chicago Bulls the previous season. "C.J. Watson is exactly the type of player we were looking for when we said we needed to address our bench," said Bird. "Hes experienced and he has been with winning teams, so he knows what it takes."

Having brought in Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria during his first season at Old Trafford, Van Gaal has since taken a gamble on relatively unproven players, with Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian brought to the club at the start of the current campaign.The Dutchman has come in for intense criticism in recent months as Uniteds alarming slump has seen them eliminated from the Champions League and fall out of contention for the title. Van Gaals youngsters We look at Louis van Gaals Manchester United academy graduates A lengthy injury list has forced Van Gaal to blood several academy prospects in recent weeks, with Marcus Rashfords remarkable step up to the first team the highlight as United claimed vital wins against Midtjylland and Arsenal respectively.And Sky Sports pundit Merson believes the criticism of Van Gaal has been harsh, particularly in light of his youth policy compared to other league managers. High-profile signing Radamel Falcao failed to produce I feel sorry for Van Gaal a bit, Merson said. He could have come into United and spent all that money on 28-year-olds, proven footballers who have won things.That might not have helped the club in the long term but it might may have delivered a trophy. However, in three years time it would leave the club in a worse place than they are now.But he hasnt done that. He went out and has bought youngsters for the future and has given other youngsters a chance. Marcus Rashford grabbed two goals and an assist on his Premier League debut Its not the same as [Arsene] Wenger, who has been manager for almost 20 years. Kris Dunn Black Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Van Gaal has been there for less than two, so its a completely different case.He has bought players for the future for United as a club. Hes not thinking of himself, hes hoping they are going to be in a better position when he leaves.United will be out to maintain their recent upturn in form when Watford travel to Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Rashford has scored four goals in his first two Manchester United games The Reds have the chance to win four consecutive games for only the second time this season, with victory keeping their slim hopes of finishing in the top four alive.Merson believes Uniteds signings, aided by their unfazed academy players, are starting to settle into life at one of world footballs biggest clubs and has tipped the resurgence to continue. Van Gaal has bought players for the future, for United as a club. He’s not thinking of himself, he’s hoping they are going to be in a better position when he leaves. Sky Sports Paul Merson United are really getting some momentum behind them and the goals of Rashford seem to have lifted the whole club and the fans, Merson added. When one of your own scores a couple of goals, then the supporters walk away seeing a brighter future.Away from him, it feels like some of the others are now getting used to playing for a very big club. Van Gaal has invested in Uniteds future with the acquisition of Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial Anthony Martial was playing in front of small crowds at Monaco and now hes learning his trade in front of 75,000 at Old Trafford.Watford will be hard to play against but I expect United to win on Wednesday.

Raekwon McMillan Youth Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .Weaver took the loss in his second major league start as Cesar Hernandez homered, doubled and singled to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.Weaver (0-1), a 22-year-old 2014 first-round picks, went five innings and allowed three runs on nine hits with six strikeouts and no walks.I might be trying to make too good of pitches, which pushes the pitch count up, said Weaver, who was lifted after 96 pitches. Its not about making the perfect pitch, just making a quality one.Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Weaver just needs to trust the stuff that got him to the big leagues.If theres one thing I think hes doing, he might be giving hitters at this level too much credit, Matheny said. Hes a guy thats been able to work in the zone and the bottom of the zone and trust his stuff and not feel like he has to be perfect. It looks like hes trying to be perfect here.Jeremy Hazelbaker homered and Jhonny Peralta had three hits for St. Louis, which had won five in a row. The Cardinals are 1 1/2 games ahead of Miami for the second wild-card spot in the National League.We had a hard time getting anything going against their starter, Matheny said. We couldnt get a lot of those late hits weve been accustomed to getting.St. Louis fell short of setting a major league record of 10 straight games with multiple home runs. The Cardinals tied the mark with a pair of homers Friday night.Its hard to hit one a game for a consistent amount of time, Matheny said. I thought today might be a day, especially when Hazelbaker hit one early. You could it the way guys were taking their at-bats there was an opportunity to maybe do it again.Maikel Franco had two hits, including a double and the winning RBI, and Aaron Altherr homered for the Phillies. They have hit home runs in 14 straight games.Great night for us, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said.Jeremy Hellickson (10-7) became the first Phillies starter to throw seven innings since July 26.That was just what the doctor ordered, Mackanin said.Hellickson skipped his last start because of back tightness. The right-hander looked healthy and sharp, allowing two runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and one walk. He pumped his fist into his glove after striking out pinch-hitter Greg Garcia to finish the seventh.I felt good, Hellickson said. It was good to save the bullpen tonight. I was just getting ahead and kept the fastball down for the most part.Franco put the Phillies ahead for good with a two-out single to left in the fifth that scored Hernandez from third.Jeanmar Gomez pitched a scoreless ninth for his 33rd save in 37 opportunities.The Phillies jumped on Weaver with a pair of runs in the first.Hernandez led off by driving an 0-1 pitch into the seats in right field for his fourth homer of the season. The Phillies have gotten Hernandez to level his swing midseason, and he is batting .350 since June 27. He is hitting .500 with a pair of homers in seven games during Philadelphias current homestand.Hes really swinging the bat well, Mackanin said. We had a harsh reality check for him -- keep the ball out of the air.Cameron Rupp put Philadelphia in front 2-0 with a broken-bat RBI single to left.The Cardinals tied it in the third. Weaver singled to center for his first career hit and scored on Hazelbakers two-run homer to left.After the Phillies took the lead in the fifth, Altherr made it a 4-2 game by drilling an 0-1 pitch from Jonathan Broxton over the wall in left.YOU AGAIN?Altherrs homer was the first the Phillies have hit off Broxton since Matt Stairs pinch-hit homer in Game 4 of the 2008 NLCS at Los Angeles.WEAVERS OUTINGRARE WINThe Phillies won for just the third time in their last 12 games against St. Louis.FAN HITA young fan sitting about 20 rows behind the Cardinals dugout was struck by a foul ball off the bat of Freddy Galvis in the eighth inning. After being treated at the seat for several minutes, the fan was carried out to the concourse by an adult into the waiting arms of medical personnel.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: Hernandez was back in the starting lineup after a two-game absence due to a sore right foot.

MIAMI -- Christian Yelich reached 20 home runs in a season for the first time in his young career with the Miami Marlins.Yelich hit a solo home run off Max Scherzer in an 8-3 loss to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.The 24-year old outfielder had not hit more than nine home runs in a season before this year. He has a .299 average and a career-high 95 RBI.There is still room for him (to grow as a hitter), Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. That was one of the first true pull homers weve seen from him that he gets the ball up in the air he hits it clean and gets the right angle. Its coming. Hes only going to get better. Crossing those barriers, you start to know you can. To double (his homer total) in one season, your mind goes `I can do that.Tom Koehler (9-12) allowed four runs -- three earned -- in four innings for the Marlins. They had won three in a row to stay in contention for the second wild card spot.It kind of leaves us in the same spot, Mattingly said. It wouldve been nice if we could have won and cut a game off. Hopefully the Dodgers win tonight.Scherzer (18-7) strengthened his case to be the NL Cy Young Award winner. He pitched 6 2/3 innings to tie for the National League victory lead with 18.When we needed shut-down innings I was able to go out there and put up zeroes when we really needed it and it helped get the offense going, Scherzer said.Scherzer allowed three runs and struck out eight to push his major league-leading total to 267. Hes tied for with Chicagos Jon Lester for the most wins in the NL.He should be in strong consideration for a Cy Young, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. I talked to him earlier and I gave him a number and said lets win six or seven of them and he said, `I want to win all of them. Thats the attitude you want and thats the attitude that he carries and the guys love playing behind him.Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run homer and Trea Turner also homered for the Nationals.We got some good offensive days out of some guys especially after our offense was a little sleepy the last couple of days, Baker said.Washington ended a four-game losing streak and lowered their magic number to two to win the NL East over the New York Mets with a chance to clinch on Friday at Pittsburgh.Ive never been a part of anything like this, buut its exciting, Turner said. Cordrea Tankersley Youth Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Every game means something even down the stretch playing for home-field advantage or whatever it may be. Its exciting and I enjoy it.Yelich hit a solo home run and Derek Dietrich hit a two-run homer to chase Scherzer in the seventh and cut it to 6-3.Prior to the home runs allowed by Yelich and Dietrich, Scherzer had only allowed two hits.Obviously there in the seventh-of course Im frustrated about that, Scherzer said. You cant walk away from an outing like that feeling great when you give up two home runs especially when your last pitch is a home run. But youll beat yourself up and drive yourself crazy if you try to sit here every single start worrying about the negatives. This start had way more positives and thats what Im going to focus on.Wilson Ramos had an RBI double and scored on a sacrifice fly in the eighth to extend the Nationals lead to 8-3.Washington scored its first run when Koehlers pick-off throw to second went into centerfield and Yelich was unable to field it cleanly allowing Danny Espinosa to score.Zimmermans three-run homer, his 15th, to left field gave the Nationals a 4-0 lead in the fourth.You cant really afford to spot Max a 4-0 lead, Koehler said. More times than not he gets four runs, hes not going to give it back.Jayson Werth had an RBI single and Turner hit his 12th home run for a 6-0 advantage.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: RF Giancarlo Stanton was held out of the lineup after starting and homering in the last two games.
